Always something to see, something to hear...
"Some people find it easier to play a violin concerto or to make or lose a million dollars than to sit still for thirty minutes.|
'Fidget' comes from an Old Norse word that means 'to desire eagerly.' Fidgeting and boredom are the symptoms of fear of emptiness, which we try to fill up with whatever we can lay our hands on. We are taught to be bored, to seek easy entertaintment, to ardently desire the ephemeral. There are multibillion dollar industries - television, alcohol, tobacco, drugs - based on feeding this fear of emptiness."
